Dear Lowman,

Pat Toomey will be a clear choice in the Republican Primary 2010 and November General Election 2010. He has indicated an interest in challenging Senator Specter.
Rick Santorum lost and Arlen Specter won in 2004. Some draw the conclusion that "moderate" wins. I draw the opposite conclusion. The failure to present a clear choice to the voters to the prevailing Statist and Collectivist 'liberalism' that is engulfing our state and our country lost the election. Rick Santorum lost his base and he lost as he morphed from Limited Government Economic Freedom advocate to Big Government Big Spender advocate, corrupted by power. Status quo Incumbent Earmarking Senator Arlen Specter appealed to 'liberal' voters as Democrat-lite. There were no Limited Government candidates in 2004 November. In 2008. there are likely to be two challengers to status quo 'liberals' in the Senate and Governor campaigns, and there will be clear choice and we will see who is the people's choice; Constitutional Limited Government; Economic Freedom; Traditional Values of Individual Responsibility and Self-determination.

The Lesson of Rick Santorum

Rick Santorum received 797,184 fewer votes in 2006 than 2001.

In 2000, in his first Senate campaign, Rick Santorum won election to Senate with 2,481,962 votes against Democratic Challenger Ron Klink 2,154,908.

In 2006, the one term Senate incumbent, three term US House member, Rick Santorum lost his second Senatorial election receiving 1, 684,778 votes against challenger Bob Casey 2,392,984.

Had he retained his base and his 2000 votes, he would have won. Rick Santorum abandoned his Constitutional, Limited Government, Economic Freedom principles to the policies of socially conservative Socialist GW Bush.

Of course, the War against Jihadism and Terror was GW Bush's finest moment and cannot be discounted.

Note that the Democrats have no abandoned their base which tells us how liberal and Socialist the American electorate is...maybe.

Arlen Specter's 2010 Challenger

The question: Who will challenge. In my opinion, it must be a person with a wide reputation as "no squish" on core values. It is, after all, traditional values of personal responsibility, rooted in a belief in eternal truths, that makes individual self-determination and government of the people and a free market for compatible and feasible. No Personal Values; No Free Government; No Free Market. Strong Values lead to a Strong Economy."Human nature, Mr. Allnut, is what we were put here to rise above." "theologian" Katherine Hepburn in African Queen, a great movie of personal self-determination and patriotism. (available on YouTube).

"Government, like clocks, go from the motion men give them; and as governments are made and moved by men, so by them they are ruined too. Wherefore governments rather depend upon men, than men upon governments. Let men be good, and the government cannot be bad. . .But if men be bad, the government (will) never (be) good."
-William Penn
